One other distinction between the two. Rick & Morty Mafia has a higher risk of being unbalanced since the complex roles are harder to predict.

It looks like nothing is really ready for sign-ups after X-men. I'm thinking of running a game and am considering two choices. Fridge Mafia - Has the potato salad gone bad? Something is spreading mold in the fridge. Kick out leftovers until the spread stops. - Simple semi-open setup, noob friendly, ...

Yeay!

And for future reference, every townie should always have a vote down, in my opinion. Even if you decided randomly, it dilutes the power of scum to control the vote.
